After the recent public autopsy of the dispute between Zai and NoobfromUA about content being taken from player’s streams, now a fellow videomaker MagiKarp has had his YouTube account suspended for breaking YouTube’s code of conduct. Whether MagiKarp is the first of many remains to be seen.

ALL of MagiKarp’s previous videos are now inaccessible

MagiKarp’s YouTube account displays the following message:

“This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, gaming, misleading content, or other Terms of Service violations.”

Players like Arteezy made their stance clear after the Zai vs NoobfromUA saga

Not necessarily linked to content from player streams

Arteezy was one player who publically stated his stance on the use of his content in the aftermath of NoobfromUA vs Zai (above), and he even tweeted asking for MagiKarp’s contact details just over a week before MagiKarp’s YouTube account was ultimately suspended. However, YouTube’s code of conduct covers a wide spectrum of things and MagiKarp’s suspension could be related to any number of things and is not necessarily linked to the use of content from player streams:

Respect copyright. Only upload videos that you made or that you’re authorized to use. This means don’t upload videos you didn’t make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations.
Part of Youtube’s code of conduct

MagiKarp’s videos were very popular and often focused around content from popular figures such as AdmiralBulldog and Arteezy, creating highlight reels from their hugely successful Twitch streams and in-game footage. Just like NoobfromUA’s videos created from player stream content, we’ve all been guilty of perhaps enjoying one or two of them, and the closure of his account will be a shame for followers of his channel. Whether or not his account will remain suspended is unknown, but other video creators should take this as a serious warning to be careful where they tread next.
